So after reinstalling windows (bc something in the process to get it to work really f**** up my pc) it says "SPF Init OK" even without installing any drivers or the device showing up as unknown in the Device Manager. But it only shows Aida Informations for a few seconds on my Samsung Device and then turns back to the screen where it says that i can switch to mini-monitor-mode with the frame manager software (which i'm unable to install because there is no working version for win10)

I even tried opening aida64 in admin-mode

Yes, we've heard about such issues when using SPF devices with Win10, but so far we haven't found a resolution :(

i somehow got it to work for me. since aida tried to switch the frame to mini monitor mode there was a small time window, where the frame showed up as mini monitor in my device manager. and i was fast enough to quickly click on it and install your spf driver troughout the device manager

Maybe that's the trick then. To be super quick :) Great job!

I've been using a Samsung SPF-107H for a few years but on my spare PC which I don't use that often. Last week, I moved it to my main PC and set it up. It works great except that at random times, it switches from mini monitor to mass storage mode and I have to turn it off and back on again to get it working.

When it does this, 2 new entries appear in device manage under disc drives and I lose the libusb-win32 devices entry.

I'm afraid Samsung SPF devices are not 100% stable.  Overheating and firmware getting mixed up seem to plague them quite frequently :( These days we'd recommend using Beadapanel instead of Samsung SPF.

Yes, I have noticed that the my Samsung SPF drops off and comes back quite regularly now.  I have noticed that it appears to stay longer if I drop the screen brightness.  I guess this might be related to temperature.

Is there any way you can adjust the LCD screen brightness from within AIDA?  It seems to revert back to 130 after power cycle.

AFAIK there's no software based method to adjust the brightness of Samsung photo frames :(

Thanks for feeding back. 

I have more details, and what looks like a cure for me!  Details posted here in case anyone else has similar issues.

 

Problem:

I was looking for clues as to why the Samsung LCD panel would stop working.

 

Background:

All my devices (keyboard, mouse, headphones, oculus rift & sensors, monitor usb hub and powered external hub, G920 etc.) were distributed evenly between the "Intel" and "ASMedia" USB controllers.

Since using new headphones I could regularly hear disconnect / reconnect windows sounds.

Looking for clues I was watching device manager and observed both the Samsung LCD and Oculus rift sensors were dropping out. 

 

My process: 

After "random" trying the LCD in different ports I unplugged everything and went through a process of elimination to work out which devices (and hubs) worked best on each port.  This took around two hours!

 

My results:

1) Keyboard & mouse, USB 2.0 ports.  This wasn't a configuration change but is worth keeping in mind.

2) Samsung LCD stopped dropping off when it was plugged directly onto the "Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller".  

3) USB headphones would not detect in windows if they were plugged into the adjacent port to the LCD.

4) Oculus rift sensors were repeatedly disconnecting and reconnecting when plugged into ASMedia controller(s) and issues reported by oculus software.  Move to "Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller" and no more issues reported.

5) System has been stable since moving all devices onto the "Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller".

6) Rift sensors plugged into powered usb 3.0 hub (Anker)

7) Monitor plugged into powered usb 3.0

8) Headphones & Game controller plugged into monitor (don't judge, it's the most accessible cable point!)

9) G920 & Oculus rift direct connect to rear ports on motherboard)

 

I hope that helps anyone else out there!

 

Motherboard: Asus Rampage V Extreme

I too have been using Samsung SPF (87H) in Windows 10 for years; without any realy problems I might add.

I don't have it running every day, so I don't know when it stopped working, but it's a bit odd...

When I start the display, it says "PC connected via USB cable".
I then select "Mini Monitor"; this always takes a few seconds; but while I can see in the Device Manager, that your "libusb-win32" driver is being loaded, it suddenly gets unloaded with a message displayed on the SPF: "Your photo frame must be connected tot he PC"

I've already tried a different USB cable and several USB ports (back or front); as it was working at least a few weeks ago: could a Win-Upd have "broken" the driver?

I don't even have the latest version; only an up2date 1909...

Does this driver work for you? What's your Win10 version? Latest updates installed?

Thanks for any infos!

We've tested the Samsung SPF module of AIDA64 using our SPF-75H test device, under Windows 10 64-bit Version 1909, with the libusb driver that we supply, and it works flawlessly.

      Didn't see a Beta forum so I'm posting here.
       
      The newest Beta 5357 doesn't load the LCD Items interface. All get in the upper left corner is the LCD icon and that's all. No Import/Export, nothing. This did not happen on any other beta version. It also happens if  I run it as a portable and not as an update to the install 5300 version.
    • By neg12roni
      Issue: Latest beta 5364 (and same as previous beta5357) does not load LCD items from Preferences menu.
      Expected Behavior: Running standard release of Aida64 Extreme (6.20 5300) and installing to latest beta all menu items that previously worked should continue to work
      Actual behavior: As upgrade from clean 6.20 (5300) install OR using as a portable version, the app fails to truly initialize the Beada LCD panel. LCD Items  under the Preferences menu do not populate.
